FLINT TWP. — Looking like a flashback in time, several classic cars cruised up to the 1950’s-styled Mega Classic Diner, 4462 Corunna Rd., July 17, leading the way for other old car shows taking place in the township.
Several long, sleek vintage convertible Cadillacs were among the many makes, models and eras represented at the Fun in the Sun Cruise. Hot rods, classic beauties and even a motorcycle were spotted among the mix of vehicles parked on the lawn next to the diner for the three-hour show.
Classic car enthusiasts can look forward to the next out- ing at the Back to the Bricks Tune-up, August 4. It starts in the parking lot at Genesee Valley Center shopping mall from 2- 4:30 p.m. then moves down the road to Duke’s Car Stereo, G-4081 Miller Rd. from 5-8 p.m.
For the third consecutive year, the mall event will be staged in the south parking lot near Logan’s Roadhouse. Michigan Digital Image will provide music. Giveaways and concessions will be available for purchase from Hot Dog Heaven and Roaring 20’s Ice Cream Parlor, as well as other giveaways, according to a mall press release.
The first 250 vehicles will receive a ticket for a commemorative Tune-Up Party T-shirt. Participants can collect a different design at each of the six community Tune-Up parties held during the week of Aug.4-9. Back to the Bricks volunteers will distribute tickets for the shirts, beginning at 2 p.m. at Genesee Valley. Shirt distribution will take place at Duke’s at 7:30 p.m.
A full schedule of Tune-Up Parity locations and activities is posted on the official Back to the Bricks website at www.backtothebricks.org
The big Back to the Bricks car show will be held in downtown Flint Aug. 12-16.
